I have 15 years' experience of teaching French to adults. I run French evening classes in Bromham, near Bedford. Classes for various levels run during the academic year. The emphasis is on developing confidence and accuracy in a supportive and friendly atmosphere. Groups are small - never more than 10 per class.

I also offer private tuition for individuals or small groups, including revision for exams. Please contact me to discuss your requirements.

Intermediate French

The focus of this course is on improving confidence and accuracy in communication using a wider variety of materials and a broad range of topics. You should be reasonably confident in dealing with everyday situations in France such as shopping, ordering meals, asking for directions and information. You will need a copy of the textbook Voici! - An Intermediate Course in French for Adults by Jacqueline Gonthier and Crispin Geoghegan. This book is written specifically for adults and includes a lot of material suitable for private study as well as group activities. It is strongly recommended that you obtain the accompanying CDs as these are excellent for listening practice, we will listen to some items in class but further repetition is needed for developing listening comprehension. The textbook will be supplemented by additional material which will include listening and reading comprehension, videos, songs and poems.
